Missing in Action – Spring?

This past week has been, well, interesting – to say the least. Classes are back in full swing after a relaxing spring break, and with the NCAA March Madness coming to an end for the Butler men’s basketball team, well, it’s pretty much back to the real world for now. With basketball gone and school going full-force after spring break, I’ve pretty much left my productivity somewhere that is unknown, and I haven’t been able to find it. All I want to do lately is sleep and relax, but I guess that’s just because it was the first week back from spring break.

Snow..........it just now finally stopped!

Speaking of things “MIA,” has anyone seen the season of spring around anywhere? Butler received 6 inches of snow last night alone, and more fell pretty much all day until about 3PM today. Let alone classes weren’t canceled, which I was fairly bitter about when I first woke up this morning. The campus really looks its best in the snow, I will admit. It’s so picturesque, and I honestly feel like everything looks fake! The snow makes for me wanting to be even less productive as is, and I just want to really get into bed and watch a movie or something, instead of the two papers I have to write as well as the calculus homework I haven’t started yet…Boo. I’m actually going to get started on that and then maybe afterwards I’ll be able to enjoy the snow, and perhaps join a snowball fight that is know to happen on campus, whether it be on the Butler Mall or at one of the residence halls! Hopefully spring will come back, and the weather will warm up again (like it was on Saturday)!

Cue the Snowpocalypse

It is now 11:00 PM, and the snow has yet to stop falling. Today was a typical day. I woke up earlier than usual for a presentation for my RBE class for the Butler Bed Buddy, and then gave a presentation. After class I walked to my room and took a nap for about an hour before going to Atherton in order to present the Butler Bed Buddy to passer-byers who were headed to lunch.  After which, I went back to my room and laid back down because I wasn’t feeling well. It was a regular day – a Tuesday.

Beginning of all of the snow!

Well, to my surprise, when I woke up around 5 from my second nap (which is slightly sad) there was snow EVERYWHERE, and it hasn’t stopped! The campus is covered in white, and it’s really nice to see because we don’t get that much snow back home! It’s somewhat of a double-edged sword, though – I want more than anything to be out of class tomorrow (and the snow is giving me hope for it), but I also have a peer-editing review session in one of my classes and another review for my business calculus exam on Friday! Either way I’m going to be glad that it happened, but hopefully it happens soon and I find out whether or not I need to set my alarm. I love snow days!
